Hello! How's it going?

You know what's crazy? Adjusting to Hong Kong. I have never been this busy before. The first time I got here, I felt so overwhelmed because everyone walks so fast! Guess what, I am walking faster than them now. We got tons of appointments this week. It was cool. We moved to Tai Po, I am not sure why they moved us. Our area is now far from our apartment.  For the last three nights we had to run going back home. It is crazy! It takes about thirty minutes to get home. 

As fun as it sounds I am still adjusting to missionary life. It is still hard but with the help of the Lord I know I can do it! Contacting People was pretty hard for me. Spent 3 hours in one place talking to people. Rejection after rejection... In three hours we could only stop 4 people. Its all good! Those 4 souls are golden. We taught 4 persons this week. Chinese people are really hard to teach. They have this philosophical background. Some just wants to be friends HAHA! but it is all good, the spirit sure will testify to them.

I now live in Tai Po. We have new "apartment-mates" Elder Kong from Provo ( He is korean) and Elder Klein from London.

Yesterday we went to the Bishops house for dinner. His name is bishop Zhang and he had a really big house. It's touching because I felt like I was just at home.See ya next week! :)
